Vikings Face Television Blackout

There are over 11,000 unsold tickets for this weekend's Eagles at Vikings Wild Card Game, meaning the game will likely not be seen on television in the Twin Cities market. It has been 11,681 days* since January 9, 1977, when the Vikings lost their fourth (and final) Super Bowl to the Raiders (SB XI).

This probably is not a coincidence.

*That's a stat you won't see anywhere else. Only my insanity would allow me to see a number like 11,000 and think "I bet it has been about that long since 1977".
